Description

The Garmin Instinct Tactical is a robust military watch. You can easily switch to the night view, which you can also read with night glasses on. Thanks to the Jumpmaster mode, the watch calculates high altitude release points according to military guidelines. That means you can navigate to the right place in enemy territory after your parachute jump. Next, turn on sneak mode. This disconnects all connections and the watch stops sharing your GPS location. This is how you surprise your target. The Instinct Tactical complies with U.S. military standard 810 for temperature, shock, and water resistance. It can withstand the toughest conditions, from jumping out of an airplane to diving to a depth of 100 meters. In addition, the watch helps you train properly. It measures your heart rate and has integrated sports apps.

Note: a charger adapter isn't included. Do you want to charge the watch via a socket? If so, order a charger adapter separately.

    • Multiple time zones visible
    • Different watch faces as background
    • Heart rate monitor works fine
    • Flexible Wristband not stiff at all
    • Many options possible
    • Battery does not last very long
    • Not possible to answer Whatsapp on Watch

    I like it, you quickly understand how it works, and because of the many options it remains fun to make everything your own.
    Battery drains quickly with frequent use.

    Price-quality very good
    • Price quality
    • Navigation breadcrumb
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Quickly finds GPS
    • no support for Garmin Running Dynamics for those who want to work on their running style

    I am very satisfied with my Garmin Instinct (had it for 3 months now). I mainly use it as a (trail) running watch (and therefore not as an activity tracker), a training week (about 6 hours?) goes very smoothly on one battery charge, which is handy. For heart rate measurement I rely on an external chest strap. The simple breadcrumb navigation is also useful, sometimes a backup device with map (or arrows to follow) is useful in places with many forks/paths. The elevation profile screen is also useful during navigation. The height measurement seems less impressive to me, but maybe I should calibrate again. The only drawback is something I hadn't thought of beforehand: if you want to work on your running style for injury prevention or rehabilitation, you can normally buy an accessory via Garmin that measures a number of running parameters (e.g. stride length, oscillation,...), but you can't link it to a Garmin Instinct, then it's better to choose a Forerunner. Fortunately, your cadence does measure the Instinct.
    So all in all satisfied!

    Good watch if you like sports and adventure.
    • Good GPS
    • Readability in bright sunlight
    • design
    • Sports Features
    • No

    Does what I expected. There are many functions on it, so it takes some time to learn/discover everything.

    great watch.
    • design
    • Colour
    • Comfort
    • Water resistance
    • Battery life

    Good watch, especially for that price, but the battery life is short, I think, about 5/6 days without GPS, then it runs out even faster. However, the watch is highly recommended because of the price-quality ratio.

    Top watch: comfortable, light and versatile.

    The sports functions are easy to use. The navigation function seems difficult to use, but using the Garmin Explore app, it's not that bad. The battery lasts a very long time, using the GPS functions does seem to speed up the draining of the battery, which is logical. I'm sorry I didn't buy this watch sooner!

    No-nonsense watch
    • Clock fits nicely on the wrist
    • Once you understand the controls, quick to operate
    • Many options
    • Accurate and fast location determination
    • GPS does it a lot less inside
    • Needs some use before you get it
    • Do you measure stress??

    After wearing the watch for a while, I think it's a very handy and easy watch, I was really looking for certain functions in the beginning, but they were so worn out.
    Charge quickly and the battery lasts a long time (it easily lasts for 1.5 weeks with normal use with sports tracking)

    In addition to all the things the clock can do, it is also a beautiful thing to see
